Firmware Update

This guide shows you how to update the firmware on your Open Mower.

Prerequisites

This update guide assumes that you have the following:

  • A mower with the OpenMowerOS running on it.
  • Important: verified that the /boot/mower_config.sh file has the correct hardware version set (OM_HARDWARE_VERSION). If this is wrong, the wrong firmware will be installed on your device. Check the Manual Firmware Installation guide on how to find that value.
  • The Raspberry Pi is running, and you are able to connect to it via ssh
  • The mower is connected to the internet

Step 1: Run the Firmware Update Script

The OpenMowerOS image contains a firmware update script which will download and install the latest firmware version for you.

In order to run the script, execute the following commands:

# Make sure that you are in your home directory (the script is located there):
cd ~
# Execute the script:
./fetch_and_upload_firmware.sh

If everything works as expected, the output should look like this:

Step 2: Done šŸŽ‰

That’s everything you need to do.
